[Haskell-cafe] From some "High-Performance Computing" book; "It is hard to eradicate from C++'ers the need for objects, classes, etc. ..."

"For high-performance computing you want to avoid such software engineering
abstractions as classes, objects, etc...."

Therefore, I would say, since Haskell makes possible many fine-levels of
abstraction, if the compiler can strip most of these away, then it would
come close to the speed of C (i.e. C++ without most of the software
engineering abstractions).

Still, I remember that quote that, "Another level of indirection solves


If you're Penn & Teller, "Another level of misdirection solves everything."
